It’s getting towards the end of August, but the heat continues – and so do my not-so-big harvests. At least my plants are surviving and trying to produce for me. This past week, I harvested a half pound of tomatoes (I do have flowers again, so that’s hopeful), 4 pounds of peppers, 4.5 pounds of melons, 4.5 pounds of pumpkins, 1.5 pounds of winter squash, and a half pound of raspberries. Take a look.
The produce identification is listed from the top of the picture, clockwise.
HARVEST AUGUST 17:
Not a bad haul for the day. My green bell peppers are small because of the heat.
HARVEST AUGUST 19:
Not much was ready to harvest today, but I did get a full ramekin of raspberries.
HARVEST AUGUST 22:
I harvested my first pumpkins! I’ve tried for 3 years to grow pumpkins, and I finally found a variety that grows well in our hot summers.
My raspberry harvest has already outgrown the ramekin. It will soon outgrow this miniature bucket with all the flowers and fruit on the canes. I already have a container full in the freezer for raspberry preserves.
This was quite the harvest day. Only thing missing is tomatoes.
What are you harvesting in your garden?
